Removing the Anti-Glare/Etched Glass coating on Cintiq Pro 16"

Postby morelightning » Sat 26. Jan 2019, 02:27

If I take an Xacto knife to the corners, will the anti-glare/etched glass come off?

The coating on the Cintiq is like dipping your eyes in acid. I don't care about the surface feeling like paper.

So can someone at wacom confirm if it will come off if I try really hard, and about how thick is that layer?

The display is "optically bonded" to the glass, which as I understand it means the LCD, and the glass are glued together. So you'll probably just damage the display.


Here's an expansion of optical bonding:

Your best bet is probably trying to find a matte screen protector.

Hope that helps!

Do you mean that a matte screen protector would cancel out the rainbow grainy shimmering that comes from the etched glass?

I found this on amazon, but it has no reviews: https://www.amazon.com/Screen-Protector ... B074NYWFN9

I'm not sure what "rainbow grainy shimmering" means, is it something you can take a pic of to make sure we're on the same page?

Yes, that was my thinking. However I'd try and find some reviews / other brands with reviews. You could also try sending a DM to Frenden on twitter - he's very knowledgeable about most things tablet related.

I don't have a camera on me at the moment, but as I understand the phenomena it comes from the light bending at angles through the bumpy etched glass layer, so that ever pixel is behind a million bumpy prisms that create color aberration, and as you move your head, the angle changes creating a shimmering fluctuation of prism colors.

I ordered that screen protector, it should arrive on Monday, and I will write back here if it helped or not. The only other one I saw with reviews isn't worth discussing because it was a bad product in another sense.

I'll try reaching out to this Frenden guy too, thanks for the referral.

This would immediately void the warranty of the device. I highly advise against trying this.

Sigh, the matte screen protector does not help, it massively makes it worse.

The only way to remove anti glare is to buy a clear screen protector like this one :
